Apple's 2018 iPad Pros will be slimmer and feature Face ID, apparently

Apple is also expected to introduce its latest chipset Apple A12 that will be powering the upcoming phones this year.

It is as yet unclear when Apple is going to unveil these new tablets.

However, there is no word if the device will have an iPhone X-like notch or not. MacRumors explained that these dummy units are typically based on schematics derived from Apple's Chinese supply chain, and often back up previous reports hinting at an upcoming device's screen size. Reports suggest that the 2018 iPad Pro lineup could support Animoji similar to what we have seen on the iPhone X. It is expected that the company will launch the new iPad along with the new iPhones at an event in September.

A 6.5-inch iPhone dummy is seen in the same leak. The cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone model will come with an LCD display while the two other variants will feature OLED displays. This is nearly exactly the same as the 5.8-inch iPhone X except from its bigger size. Last June two iPad Pros (the 10.5in and 12.9in) were also released, though this year June has come and gone with no releases.

There's a lot of buzz about the 6.1-inch iPhone, and that's obviously because of the price.

If you're familiar with the design language of the iPhone X, nothing should be too surprising here. Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo cited that the next iPad Pro models will have a Face ID experience "consistent with the iPhone X".

While most of the recent Apple rumors and speculation have focused on this year's iPhone lineup and the addition of a fullscreen LCD model, there's reason to believe we'll also be seeing new iPad Pro models for 2018. As in the case with smartphones, such a decision is forced, as in place of the mini Jack to move the new iPad Smart Connector, which once was located on the side face. This time we have the first CAD images that help us understand the new placement of certain components. If you don't have wireless headphones, you can still use an adaptor that converts your headphone port into a Lightning connector - the same connector that charges your iPhone. While there is no confirmation, but Apple might increase the display size, and reduce the overall dimensions of the tablet.
